Ep 32: Mojo Nixon (Musician/Activist/DJ) Interview about his life and the documentary (The Mojo Manifesto - The Life and Times of Mojo Nixon)
This was recorded live and released as is!
I first heard of Mojo Nixon from the line in the song "Punk Rock Girl" from the Dead Milkmen. In this interview, co-hosted by an.earful.of.wax, we talk about his southern liberal roots, his awakenings from using psychedelic mushrooms, his activism, his connection to the Dead Milkmen, Hunter S. Thompson, Woody Guthrie, his influences from old blues singers and outsider musicians, what he'd do if he was President, his work with Jim Dickinson, and much more.
Some truly great stories from this true American hero.
